About Me

My photo
No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

B is for Beautiful!

Brian Berke sent these last week while I was having problems with an Internet connection, they are this Christmas's window display at Scully & Scully (sooner than I thought we'd return to them - They've overtaken their brethren in the queue!) in New York; I'll let Brian's pictures tell their own story.

Whitemetal/pewter, professionally painted, gorgeous, gorgeously-painted 'Nuremburg' or Kulmbach style flats.











They really are lovely, thanks - as always - to Brian for grabbing the shots, and getting them to the blog for Christmas.

The first shot is a silver plated Nativity Scene, the opposite to the plastic Charlie Brown, Peanuts set earlier in the holiday. Happy New Year!

Cheers Terra . . . I get the distinct impression you wern't too enamoured of the Peanuts nativity? I Know where you're coming from and shall we say - diplomatically - it was very 'American'!

Happy New Year!
